30-Year Old Cardboard’s “STATE OF THE PALMER”
Once a year I try to give a complete recap of my major player collections. This gives me a chance to time-stamp the full collection on my blog so I can keep this data stored in an easy to find manner while also getting to share the information with the great readers of ’30-YOC’.
In the past this has served me very well as I have met some great player collectors through these posts – and also struck up some great trades too.
This is 30-Year Old Cardboard’s “STATE OF THE PALMER”.
Here is a complete breakdown of my entire Jim Palmer baseball card collection:
- total cards – 241
- cards from playing days – 56
- cards issued post retirement – 185
- relic cards – 20
- in-person / TTM autographs – 0
- certified autographs – 3
I’ve been actively collecting Jim Palmer baseball cards for more than four years. Thankfully he is included in a lot of modern issues so the opportunity to grow the collection is still very real. I would like to expand on the vintage cards as time and money allow, and I would like to pull in a few more autographed cards as well.
